Apologies for any inconvenience. –Ann Bartow
Ugh. I was going to do a link round up but one is all I have the stomach for. I need some time away from the Internet today. Comments may be very slow to post, sorry. –Ann Bartow ETA: The … Continue reading
I posted this because it struck me as illuminating one small piece of the complicated terrain that is the porn industry. It’s an industry with high rates of violence, disease transmission, injury, substance abuse and suicide, and generally very modest … Continue reading
“Google must divulge the viewing habits of every user who has ever watched any video on YouTube, a US court has ruled.”
BBC account here. We don’t embed YouTube clips here at FLP but we do link to them sometimes. Hope checking them out hasn’t gotten anyone in trouble. The Order is accessible here. The court apparently concluded that the Video Privacy … Continue reading
For those of you who don’t follow folk music, the post title is a reference to this. The occasion is one million page loads for this blog, according to the stat counter at the bottom of the page. Wahoo! Thanks … Continue reading
Up until fairly recently, googling “Feminist Law Professors” or “Feminist Law Profs Blog” or the like returned this blog as the first or close to first search result. Now the blog itself doesn’t come up on the first ten result … Continue reading
Law profs Cass Sunstein and Eugene Volokh debate this here.
I recently returned from a conference where one of the panels I spoke on concerned “hate speech” and the other addressed related topics. The audience skewed heavily libertarian, but the conversations sparked by the panels still seemed fairly productive. However, … Continue reading
I’m listening to Jack Balkin (of Balkinization) give a talk, whilst sitting next to one of my very favorite law prof bloggers, Michael Froomkin (of Discourse.net), and next to him is Brad DeLong (of Grasping Reality with Both Hands: The … Continue reading
Still working to catch the culprit and fix the problem.
The ads and spam are not our doing and we apologize for allowing them to infect the blog, espcially given the odious porn links some of you are getting in your RSS feeds.
All it contained was a link to a seven year old newspaper article. Marginally more palatable than the photo of the dismembered penis I received yesterday, but still odd. –Ann Bartow
Can I get a napkin, please?
From here. Concerns about American Apparel here.
As you might already be aware if you’ve seen the NYT, “Margaret B. Jones” lied about her background. She grew up wealthy, rather than poor. Her self-reported escapades and good deeds were lies. And a Holocaust memoir published in 1997,”Misha: … Continue reading
“…public humiliation could play a role in suicide because ‘hopelessness is often a major risk factor, and if you’ve been publicly humiliated and your reputation has been tarnished forever, you could see how someone could become hopeless.’ Such situations … could contribute to feeling that life is unbearable. …”
That’s a short excerpt from this article in the NYT entitled “After Suicide, Blog Insults Are Debated.” Below is another: … unlike some other forms of public humiliation, online insults can live in perpetuity. Whether that increases suicide risk, Mr. … Continue reading
At the New York Review of Books, because it’s a book as well as blog review. Among other highlights, she quotes Twisty Faster on blow jobs!
The irony does not escape me. –Ann Bartow
Can’t access the e-mail account for this blog for some reason. This will slow comment moderation and impair posting. –Ann Bartow
James Grimmelmann has an interesting mediation on advertising and blogs at The Laboratorium. I found it via Froomkin who has a somewhat different take on the issue. I find myself agreeing with Grimmelmann, with an added concern about transparency and … Continue reading
I found this post, which made me laugh, even though I’m pretty sure offense was intended. –Ann Bartow
I hosted a birthday party for my friend K. last night and it was terrific. I ended the party with more food and wine than I had when I started, because everybody brought so much stuff. That’s how my friends … Continue reading
Today’s entry would be a site called “Teen Pissing” offering “Pee Free Pissing Videos Piss On Youâ€¦” Pretty sure I’m going to pass. Not going to link, either. Bleh.
Totally feelin’ this post by Arnold Zwicky at Language Log.
This blog has been named (here) as one of the “ABA Journal Blawg 100,” meaning one of the top 100 law blogs. The ABA article describes Feminist Law Professors as “A blog created for community-building among professors. Contributors note … Continue reading
From this article in the NYT: Every summer for the last four years, e-mail security company Proofpoint has surveyed large companies about their Internet security anxieties and the measures they are taking to protect themselves. The findings, of course, are … Continue reading
From the Bibliotheek, where the Internet is free! As opposed to my hotel, where it costs $22 euro (about $30, ouch) a day, and I am far too cheap for that. The museums (especially this one) and the architecture and … Continue reading
I spent a great couple of days in London hanging out with Feminist Law Prof Sharon Sandeen and her partner S., and even got to have a really fun dinner with Laurelin in the Rain (with Laurelin in a Restaurant!). … Continue reading
See e.g. this. I’d get Bridget Crawford the matching tiara as well! –Ann Bartow
Via Mary Dudziak, who writes: I was a little sheepish about mentioning to anyone at my press that I have a blog. I was afraid the reaction might be like that of my 16-year-old daughter, who, upon hearing that I … Continue reading
Jenn at Reappropriate has an interesting post here. Below is an excerpt: …The intolerance towards female bloggers, therefore, is not just a disincentive towards female participation online, but it is an attack on feminism, itself. What male aggressors promote by … Continue reading
